As per an earlier order, all elections to the Office of Mayors/Chairpersons and Corporators/Councilors will be held by using EVMs supplied by the Commission.
Ballot papers will be printed and pasted in the ballot unit of the EVM and they will also be used for the purpose of election duty certificate and tended vote.
